[en] The Brightview is the latest generation dual-head SPECT and SPECT-CT camera from Philips. It is equipped with two large field of view g-ray digital Anger detectors and with an X-ray flat panel detector. All primary and some secondary NEMA NU1-2001 performance tests were conducted on four (two SPECT and two SPECT-CT) recently installed Brightview systems mainly with 99mTc and low energy high resolution (LEHR) collimators. Intrinsic uniformity for four other isotopes (67Ga, 123I, 131I, 111In) and system uniformity with medium (ME) and high (HE) energy collimators were also measured. The measured parameters were almost identical for all the tested systems and the vast majority of measurements were within the manufacturer’s specifications. The only exception was some of the uniformity indexes of two of the heads but a new calibration solved that particular problem. System alignment could not be processed using the NEMA performance tests due to a file writing problem when performing 360° rotation for each head. However, the Philips COR test was conducted and found to be satisfactory.
